Congrats to Ethan, er, State Shirt! He won the Songfight match for Bitter Orange (see post below). So, now if you have not heard it yet, go to Songfight and check it out – its good stuff.

ps. Ethan, we should do one soon… either that or I will just have to enter into competition with you (and lose).

I spent all day Sunday writing and recording a song for one of the latest SongFights. SongFight is a site where song titles are given, and you write/record a song in a week. Post it on the site, and people vote for the best. I entered the “Bitter Orange” fight. I waited until the last day to even start writing… so I ended up spending the entire day in the studio. Didn’t even stop for a beer break. So click on over to SongFight, listen to the songs and vote for the best. If you don’t vote for me that’s okay, but I may not send you a valentine this year.

Recently, I completed sound design work for two websites designed by Yuju Yeo (one on her own, one with Osborn). They are for two different eye-wear lines from The Lens Work company. So, turn up your speakers, and check them out:

T2 Eyewear

Minima

*all sounds for the Minima site are made on my trusy Gibson Les Paul electric guitar.

Japan’s princess Kiko is pregnant!

OK. So I am exposing my ignorance here, but I did not know Japan had a princess – or any royal family for that matter. I mean, I know there was in the past, but I did not know there still is royalty in Japan. But – what I find really strange, is the photo of her on the CNN page – note the words BIG MAN just below her image?? Who’s the big man, I want to know. (I guess its part of the video monitor, but still.. strange photo choice there guys)

OK. Thats all for now thanks.

OK, So I cannot stand Bollywood films – loathe them mostly.. but this I might just have to see because it sounds so perverse – Fight Club, ala Bollywood. Via Coudal.
